Mimi is a seamstress and crafter extraordinaire, and also happens to be Matt's lovely mom. In their garage, there are gigantic tubs of re-purposed materials and fabrics, some retro, some classic, but all divine. Last time I was in Wilmington, I saw the most adorable matching purse and dress that she had created for little Gracie. But lately, Mimi has been creating homemade pincushions with material-covered buttons and adorned with gorgeous glass beaded pins which she arranges by hand.
Ironically, I had recently been drooling over these felted cupcake pincushionson Etsy and thinking about how much I needed one for my sewing projects. Thank goodness I didn't break down and buy one - Mimi made the beauty below just for me!
She is currently on the gate about starting up an Etsy to sell her beautiful creations. If/when we talk her into it, you'll be the first to know!
